lookin' fer maps

I've been wearing out my search engines trying to find Mississippi river maps online. I'm thinking along the lines of the types of info in the DNR Lakefinder site, but for the Mighty Miss and Her tributaries in the St. Cloud, Minticello and Elk River Areas. Any ideas? Links? Clues?

Hey RobertC,
I've been beatin' that dead horse too. There isn't that much out there for other info that I can find. Try out this site though. It has the Topo and the Aerial Maps. You can zoom right in on pretty much any object, lake, pond, river, farm, you name it. It also tells you what date the photo was taken. I use it to find new hunting and fishing areas. Its all point and click.

Let me know what you think.

TundraKing-
Welcome and thank you!! The aerial photo maps are great, once I establish a benchmark, like a known dam, intersection or huge man-made structure. In concert with Mapquest, I ought to be able to find my way around on land pretty well. It's really cool, too. I feel like I'm in a Tom Clancy novel, going over satellite intelligence!!

Mapquest also has its own Aerial Photo feature which shows up as a tab once it pulls up the location or address you punched in or searched for.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
